Thanks a lot for your review !! I'm so glad you enjoyed it :-D Fanny AirSports Chamonix
Fantastic Experience
, Jun 2022
Matthieu from Air Sports was amazing! He was calm, kind, and gave good instructions without being demanding. I felt safe the entire trip and would paraglide again with Air Sports, should the opportunity arise. The views were amazing! The experience was superb! Matthieu realized that I was not afraid, so he offered to do a few “tricks” near the end of the flight! It was like a roller coaster switching side to side. Soooo fun! I think that a smile was plastered on my face for the rest of the day. Did I wake up smiling the next day, possibly! Thanks Matthieu and Air Sports!
Run with Commitment

Super fun and felt in such safe hands with the flyers :) I flew with Ziggy and he did some really incredible tricks in the air! Highly recommend
It was great!

It was great! I was nervous once I realized I would be running off the highest peak in Europe, but my guide was great at calming me down. The views were amazing and the ride was very smooth. Make sure you find your own transportation and contact the organizers before for where to meet and buy your ticket up the gondola. Other than that, enjoy!

Wonderful tandem flight with such amazing pilots!

I was very nervous which is expected but Richard from air sports chamonix was so nice and accommodating. I goofed up in take off and he still did not let it hamper the experience.. he was quite informative about Mont Blanc’s history.. enjoyed thoroughly and I would recommend everyone to take tandem flight from Airsports Chamonix if you are taking one! Ask for Richard and Frances for sure!
Totally Amazing!!! Thank you AirSports Chamonix

Amazing experience! Our pilots were brilliant, very reassuring (for a pair of first time flyers), informative and friendly. Can’t recommend the experience or AirSports Chamonix enough. Fantastic and a must-do!
Best thing we’ve done, amazing

It was such an incredible experience! After watching people paraglide the day before and only finding out ON THE DAY that I was going to do it, I was so worried at first that I’d trip and mess up before take off, but the guides were so helpful and reassuring. Still cannot get over how beautiful the view was, could see the entire valley! The guides provided a GoPro as well if you wanted a video of it for a bit of a fee, but completely worth it!! I would absolutelyyy go again if I could. Thank you so much!!!
Do it

Thank you for your kind review, we hope our pilots gave you enough confidence to come back and learn to fly with us..! With best regards from the Air Sports Team
Nice flight but unorganized
, Sep 2020
Really nice flight over the valley, glacier and mountains. Just very unfortunate that the pilot was forgotten his camera. The start was rather unorganized with very little instructions and guides being late.
Amazing ride
, Aug 2020
This company managed to get us in last-minute despite a very full schedule. My son had a wonderful first ride. My husband, who has been paragliding before, had an amazing ride, even catching a thermal and riding high over the mountains. Definitely would recommend this company!
Best experience ever!
, Feb 2020
An awesome flight! It was my sister and I’s first time paragliding. The guides made us feel safe and made our flight very enjoyable. Would 100% do it again!

Friendly team with professional outlook on safety. Went for partner's birthday - brilliant experience; some waiting involved as they rightly won't go until the safest point but then wow! Amazing views while flying. +€10 out of season to use different cable car. Should confirm with them 24hrs before.

La magnifique vue de ce spot. Nous étions seuls dans le ciel de Chamonix. La gentillesse et l'expérience des moniteurs.
